1. Internet Ordering
We keep all of your ordering and billing information confidential, both online and offline. When you enter the online account and checkout pages, your personal information is encrypted, and stored in a secured server to protect you from fraud and identity theft. We are a PCI-compliant website and use bank-level security measures to protect your data.
2. Secure Order Notification
Once you check out, and your order has been accepted, the website will send you a confirmation through your email address. This information is sent to you automatically, by the same computer server that gathers your information.
3. Additional Notifications
When we have collected your personal information, we use it only for preparing and shipping that order. We also use your information if your order has problems that we need to solve. When your order has a problem, we try to connect with you over the phone or by email if we have that information. If you need to update your payment information, never do it over email. Please call us instead. Conrads will never ask you to send us an email containing account passwords or payment information.
4. The Conrads Club & Alumni Advantage Club
The Conrads Club is a service offered by Conrads College Gifts to our customers. Customers may sign up and receive promotional emails, contests, and exclusive offers. Your email address will be used solely to contact you with these emails and offers and will never be sold, shared, or rented to any third parties. Should you choose to unsubscribe, your email address will be promptly removed from the list, preventing you from receiving future offers. Please allow one week for this to take effect.
Please make sure to add firstname.lastname@example.org to your address book or safe sender list when you sign up for the Conrads Club. Emails or offers that "bounce," or offers that cannot be delivered for any other reasons, cannot be sent again.
A Conrads Club account is not required for receiving promotional emails, or making a purchase, though members do get special offers not available to non-Conrad's Club members. The Conrads Club is free to join.
When you do make a purchase and choose to create an account, you will be automatically enrolled in the Conrads Club. Your Conrads account and your Conrads Club account are linked and are on in the same.
By signing up for the Alumni Advantage club you agree to receive promotional emails which you may unsubscribe from at any time. Unsubscribing from promotional emails does not affect your status. You will still receive emails about updates and information to the program. The Alumni Advantage Club is a standalone program and not linked to your user account.
5. Email Notifications
Our website uses your email address to send you important notices about the status of your order. You are responsible for using a current email address to receive these messages. Our website will make only one attempt to send a message to your email account. Email notices about your order status that "bounce," or notices that cannot be delivered for any other reasons, cannot be sent again.
6. Cookies and Tracking
Conrads College Gifts utilizes cookies to store important information about your use of the website. Cookies are used with each shopping cart to enable you to make online orders. Additionally, we collect and store anonymous information based on the general browsing habits of customers and visitors to this site. This information is not tracked after a customer leaves the site, and does not contain any personally identifiable information. Some of this information may also be utilized in marketing and advertising on social media and parts of this site.
7. Payment Processing
Most modern sites like Conrads use a third party service to validate electronic billing information online. Because Conrads uses a third party, your credit card information goes directly to their payment processing system, and is never stored in our website before, during, or after the transaction is completed.
Your credit card information is shared with the third party only for the purpose of securely processing your order. Besides the payment processor, your credit card information is never handled by any other organizations.
Conrads does not store or print your credit card information for any purpose.
If the Online Ordering Department needs to adjust payment for your order, we may contact you over the phone for additional information. This information is stored and processed in a secure location at our store address.
8. Creating Your Account
When you create a Conrads account, you might be challenged to prove you "are not a robot." This is a CAPTCHA intended to prevent automatic "bots" from submitting fake user accounts.
The CAPTCHA will send information to reCaptcha, which is provided by Alphabet, Inc (Google)
The information required by the CAPTCHA is usually just one click from your mouse, along with basic information about your browser and the IP address it is sending information from. Sometimes, the CAPTCHA might also ask you to answer questions based on pictures or distorted text. It will not ask you to provide email or other personally identifiable information.
